San Francisco had the fourth-best rushing defense in the NFL this last season, allowing only 94.2 rushing yards per game. In the NFC Championship, the 49ers held the Falcons to just 81 rushing yards. Jacquizz Rodgers was the leading rusher for Atlanta with 32 yards. However, he was held without a reception. In its playoff opener, San Francisco limited Green Bay to just 104 rushing yards. DuJuan Harris was the leading rusher for Green Bay, as he had 11 rushed for 53 yards. He also had two catches for 11 yards.
